The crisp autumn air sweeping past these fabric remains makes otherwise benign windows a tremendous addition to a room's neglected and scary atmosphere.

Materials and Tools:
1" x 2" board (optional)
1. Remove the usual window treatment and leave the rod or place a 1x2 cut to the necessary width on the existing brackets temporarily. Drape the gauze over the rod or board so it's even on both sides and cut the panel so it puddles on the floor to add to the effect. Repeat as necessary for additional panels.
2. Brew strong coffee and put it into a spray bottle while still hot. Lay the panels flat on a tarp or hang them outside and spray them with the coffee to add instant age. Let dry.
3. Return the panels to the rod/board. Alter the edges and bottom of each by slicing or cutting chunks out of them. Hold the scissors at a downward angle to make several holes all over the drapes. Repeat and rip holes open until satisfied with their state of disintegration.
